[resolved] Looking for some form of image viewer (3 posts)

    Hi all.

    Some of you may know Gamedot has just come onto WordPress having used a custom built CMS before. When we had articles that contained screenshots we just used thumbnails and the user had to click on each image to view it in full.

    I know that WordPress automatically creates a link on each image placed in an article and so I can easily do the above again. What I'm looking for though is some form of image viewer. The user clicks on a thumbnail which shows the image in full size, but the user can scroll through each image that is there to be viewed as well. Something along those lines. Does it exist?

    I don't have a specific idea here, but I'd say go looking for a Javascript-based viewer. You may find more options than limiting yourself to the pool of WP plugins (although the latter ain't such a bad place to go looking as well.)

    If anyone else is looking for something similar, I found jQuery to be class. It automatically generates a lightbox for gallery images.
